Notes

* with Rick Danko and Levon Helm

To cover the tape flips, I used a first-generation tape made with Sennheiser 441's > Sony TC-D5M that was also recorded behind the soundboard. I used Soundforge for the patches, and to make fades where needed. The cross-faded patches are located at:
-- 3:10 of BIODTL thru 0:04 of Dupree's,
-- 0:46 thru 1:20 of Space,
-- 0:01 thru 0:26 of The Wheel.
The entire show is now seamless and uninterupted by tape-flips. You can fit this onto two 80-minute discs if you cut out the five tuning and stage announcement tracks. There's some PA-mix issues during the first part of Bucket, then things improve nicely.

I live 10 minutes north of Wonderland, where Kingswood Music Theatre once resided. I drive by it daily on my commute to work and always think what a blast it would have been to have seen the Dead in my own backyard. Alas, I was still 7 yrs away from being born.

The quality of this audience tape is spectacular. I very rarely listen to a straight aud tape (prefer SBD or matrix), however, this recording is incredibly rich and makes you feel like you're in the crowd. Thanks to the tapers!

Subject: Best of the recordings of this event
The SBDs and FM feeds are noisy. This is better, but where is the first gen of this special show for us freaks?

whatever, same q for many shows like 10/12/84 or the playin china doll high time from 4/27/84 which is being hoarded based on economic class. In fact that playin doll high time didn't even make it onto their $800 thumbstick. It'd cost me $800 to get their SBD of 10/12/84. I need it, cause, it was one of my first few shows, when we were young, that rocked us to the core. in high school, Augusta, Maine, best show for a long time if your an Eastie 16 year old head. Some shows need to be free and the best recording free due to how the show changed so many lives. I don't expect that often, but at 10/12/84 they not only rocked, but I was over the top. We still visit the augusta Maine civic center as if its a shrine whenever we go to Maine. And it is still functioning If u were there u know. 4 stars for the taper, 1 star for the bands in atttention to the archive's gaps.

Just have to give Wavy props for a killer intro to a HOT summer solstice show.

I think this show gets 5 stars for the Dead playing New Orleans and Big Boss Man.
Check out 11/8/70 which has a killer string of rare covers, including New Orleans, Searchin and the then rare Baby Blue.

I have major hearing problems. It’s called tinnitus and for those of you who don’t know it is a constant ringing in your ears. Therefore, it is hard for me to find audience shows that are of good enough quality for me to listen to without doing further damage to my hearing by having to turn up the volume past 5 to even tell what song is being played!! I am not saying anything about these shows except that as a person with major hearing lose, these are some of the shows that I have on my I-Pod. Of course some are better than others. However, I am not giving any of these shows a review. I can always find something good in every show…...as long as I can hear it!!!! Here is my list for today, 9/20/08:

7.6.84, 10.15.84, 6.19.91,
7.18.89, 6.21.84, 9.6.85,
10.12.84, 10.12.83, 11.1.85,
8.24.85, 7.31.82, 6.25.92,
8.5.89, 10.31.83, 6.26.92,
10.8.84, 12.5.81, 8.30.85,
11.5.85, 6.26.84, 8.3.82,
6.8.80, 4.3.84, 8.10.82,
3.14.81, 12.26.80, 4.15.83,
4.18.82, 10.31.91, 9.2.85,
10.14.83, 4.2.90, 4.30.90,
10.14.84,

Please let me know if you have any show suggestions that compare to these in quality of sound. Send suggestions to frostyspicks@live.com.
